The first Jane Austen fan fiction was written in an 1823 letter to the editor of The Lady's Magazine, in which Austen appeared as a character. The letter writer claims to want to know more about being a successful writer and consults Jane Austen's ghost for advice. Harvard University owns the first Austen dissertation, "Jane Austen's Novels," which was published in 1883 by George Pellew.
